Episode 10: Feeding The Homeless


Wait, What?
Yes, I know. This isn't exactly something I just learned about, the servants of hope have been doing this for 14 years now.
Yes, I know. I've attended a few of these over the years.
Yes, I know. It's at Pigeon Park, the heart of the Vancouver's downtown East-side.
Yes, I know. They feed hundreds of people on this one night.
Yes, I know. Those interested in offering donation or wanting to help can call Sean at 604-720-9335

So Mass, what exactly was it that you learned this week?
Well, firstly, I learned that December 20, 2019 at 6pm is when this years annual Feeding The Homeless will take place.
Secondly, sometimes its nice to look back and re-learn something as if it was the first time. I learned that we have to appreciate and value everything we have, and that it just takes one act of kindness, and selflessness to create something wonderful, that helps so many. 

Episode 9: Forex Trading Part 2




Episode 9: Forex Trading Part 2

This week I continued growing my knowledge of Forex trading. To some, this might go against the essence of learning something new. While I would tend to agree, I believe I have yet to fully understand Forex trading. While I could have moved on, and covered another topic, I am not satisfied  with all that I've learned and thus compelled to learn more.

Originally it was suggested I get MetaTrader 4, set up a dummy account, and practice Forex trading. I did just that, but I didn't understand anything I was supposed to be doing. I was supposed to be following certain people to understand what they were doing and learning from them, but it was just too steep a learning curve.

While I wanted to give up, I realized I needed to take a step back and start at the basics, because that my friends, is how I do my best learning. So I watched a few YouTube videos, I chatted with a few friends, but I still wasn't understanding everything, and I still don't.

I did however come across a program called GoForex, which is available on Android, IOS, and Windows. This is a great program to introduce anyone into the world of Forex trading. The program begins with teaching the basics, one chapter at a time. Before progressing to the next chapter, you must correctly answer a quiz, proving you've understood the knowledge. It then allows you to play through a simulation Forex trading environment, where you start out with $1000.
After a few hours on the GoForex simulator, I was down to $750. I went back to re-learn some of the lessons. My third day of Forex simulation trading, and I was making some great trades and was up to $1600, and finished off that days trades at $1480. 

I think I'm beginning to get the hand of this this, I'm going to keep at it a bit and let you know how it goes. I may even attempt to set up a real account, so stay tuned.

Before ending this blog post, I want to let everyone know that GoForex is a free program, and that I was not paid to endorse this product, nor do I receive any form of funding from them.

Also if anyone else knows of any great programs to test Forex Trading on, I encourage you to please let us know by sending a message or down below in the comments.
